May 18, 2015. Msgr. Oscar Romero was adopted as a patron of Caritas Internationalis, according to an announcement that came just after the organization's General Assembly in Rome ended. The former Archbishop of San Salvador will be beatified on May 23, more than 35 years after he was assassinated while performing Mass.
Pope Francis met with the members of the Congregation for Catholic Education. During his remarks, the Pope focused on the importance of school as a place for encounter and dialogue, since Catholic schools also enroll non-believers as students.
"Catholic Education is one of the greatest challenges for the Church, which is committed to carrying out the New Evangelization, in a historic and cultural context that is in constant transformation.”
Pope Francis also highlighted the need to constantly train teachers. "You cannot improvise,” the Pope said. But he added that, "teaching is an act of love.”
